Snake River Fishing Report

Snake River Fishing Report


This was the reply today from the Bureau of Reclamation on my question for an update on the Upper Snake River Dam Operations; ” We are keeping Jackson at 3500 for awhile and also palisades steady at 18,000 cfs.”

With this being said the Snake River in the Jackson Hole area along with it’s tributaries are all running very high but are hit and miss each day with the varying spring temps. We are running trips on a day to day limited basis. To give you an idea the graph below shows the current flows, which are near 5500. the 30 year average flows are 1500 so you can see the volume of water is quite significant.

What’s most important to remember is the flows being consistent and the water being clear enough for the fish to see the flies. This is why we’re running our operation and a day by day basis. If you’re wanting to get out this spring please give us a call @ 307-739-7020. We’re also booking for the summer season and there are some prime spots still available! Tight lines and happy spring!
